How To Curl A Human Hair Wig

Human hair wigs offer versatility and natural beauty that many other types of wigs simply cannot match. One of the most popular ways to style human hair wigs is by curling them. Whether you want loose waves for a casual look or tight curls for a glamorous night out, curling your human hair wig allows you to achieve the hairstyle you desire. In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of curling human hair wigs step by step, so you can achieve stunning curls with ease.

How To Curl A Human Hair Wig With A Curling Iron


Step 1: Choose the Right Curling Iron Select a curling iron with a barrel size that suits your desired curl type. Smaller barrels create tighter curls, while larger barrels produce looser waves. Consider the length and texture of your wig when making your choice.

Step 2: Prep Your Wig Before curling, ensure your wig is detangled and free of any product buildup. Apply a heat protectant spray evenly throughout the hair to shield it from heat damage. To get the best result, start with a clean, damp wig. If your wig is dry, spritz the hair with a spray bottle filled with water.

Step 3: Section the Hair Divide your wig into small sections using hair clips. This ensures you can work with manageable portions of hair, resulting in more uniform curls.

Step 4: Curl the Hair Take a section of hair and wrap it around the curling iron barrel, starting from the base and working towards the ends. Hold for a few seconds (typically 5-10 depending on heat settings and hair thickness), then release. Repeat this process for each section, curling away from your face for a more flattering look.

Step 5: Set the Curls Once all sections are curled, allow the hair to cool completely before touching it. This helps the curls set in place. If desired, lightly spray with holding spray for added longevity.

Curling with Curling Rods/Rollers

Step 1: Choose the Right Rods/Rollers Select curling rods or rollers in the size and material that aligns with your desired curl outcome. Velcro rollers are gentle on the hair and easy to use, while foam or heated rollers offer more definition.

Step 2: Prep Your Wig As with curling iron method, ensure your wig is detangled and protected with a heat protectant spray. 

Step 3: Section the Hair Divide your wig into sections based on the size of your rollers. Larger sections will result in looser curls, while smaller sections produce tighter curls.

Step 4: Roll the Hair Starting from the ends, wrap each section of hair around the roller or rod, rolling towards the base of the wig. Secure the roller in place with clips or pins.

Step 5: Set the Curls Allow the rollers to cool completely before removing them. Once removed, use your fingers or a wide-tooth comb to gently separate and arrange the curls. Finish with a light mist of holding spray if desired.
